We set up the first EVAA coffee Meet for August 8, and I can honestly tell you that it was fantastic.
We had fantastic conversations on a range of topics from EV adoption to vehicles details to autonomous driving and pet peeves of some of the vehicle features. One of the big topics of conversation was the lack of information available locally on EV’s from dealerships and the amount of misinformation and misconceptions there is out there from other sources. I believe that these coffee meets could be an awesome means of delivering that information to the masses by people who know about and own EV’s.
There is something to be said for bringing people together face to face, away from the screens that we think we know people by. This event proved that in many ways. I got to know these people from a completely different perspective and we had very pointed conversations with honest and open dialogues that I dont think anyone was actually ready to walk away from when the night ended.
I would like to thank Trevor, Marc and Donna for being a part of the event, and look forward to the next one.
If you have an EV or are just interested in finding out information about EV’s, I welcome you in attending the EVAA Coffee Meets (Find more information in the Events).
I would also like to make the challenge to anyone out there with an EV outside of the Calgary area to set up a monthly coffee meet in your area for EV owners and for those interested in getting information. If you do set one up, please let me know and I will add it to the events Calendar and send you the graphic for the table card. I will also post up the pictures of the event that you take and the write up about it!
Lets make this happen everywhere in Alberta!
